45 Mean Girls Quotes and Funny Lines That Are Still So Fetch

Mean Girls is considered one of the best comedies about teenage girls. Here are the best and funniest Mean Girls quotes.

Even after 17 years, there’s nothing more fetch than watching and quoting Mean Girls. The 2004 teen comedy starring Lindsay Lohan, is still considered one of the best films ever made about high school girls. The movie also catapulted the careers of Rachel McAdams and Amanda Seyfried to superstar levels.

The unforgettable screenplay was penned by Tina Fey, who also starred in the film. Fans will recall such hilarious moments as Regina's "cool mom" and her dog, her concept of being "half a virgin," or even not wanting to go to Taco Bell because she's on an all-carb diet.


However, behind the jokes, Mean Girls reveals real-life themes like bullying, staying true to your friends and yourself, and accepting people the way they are. While it may give some the wrong idea, at its core, Mean Girls takes a humorous, yet realistic, approach on how bullying often gets overlooked.

In one of her interviews, Tina Fey admitted that watching teenagers behave in such ways can be hilarious, but upon taking a closer look, you realize it’s actually toxic behavior. In a memorable scene, Tina Fey's character, Ms. Norbury, asks the entire grade who of them has ever felt "personally victimized by Regina George." You wouldn't expect even half the people to say yes, but everyone, including teachers, raised their hand.

There’s nothing wrong with someone wishing for popularity, but it’s important to keep in mind that being popular is not everything and certainly does not give anyone permission to be a "mean girl." Quotes from this classic film will hopefully remind you not be a Regina, and make you laugh at the same time.
